I posted this earlier but it got deleted so good luck!
Yeah but the source........:D

I'm sorry it got deleted but until it's from a mainstream UK media source = no thread. I knew eventually it'd be picked up by one and I know it's sometimes frustrating but unless we stick to it as much as we can we'll get all sort of shit posted. It's the best we can come up with to stop that, if we didn't we'd be back to everyone complaining about the number of shithouse links we allow.

As with a lot of the compromises we try to make, some of its fair and some of it isn't.

You can’t tell me the Daily Star is more credible than L’Equipe, come on now :LOL:

It's tough because all the UK media are doing is probably just linking the original story, but without rules we are nothing but Savages.

If Eriksen goes I would 100% take Draxler as long as we still got Celso. Need to have 2 playmakers in the squad.
Tough one. Definitely take him based on talent, but seems kind of a prick. He whined at Wolfsburg about how he couldn't wait to leave the club, etc. May have grown up, though!

I don't know how consistent he is but the talent is there and he's still only 25.

He's usually linked to Arsenal every window though which is strange, maybe his agent only likes moving him onto Champions League level clubs?

I get that it's designed to stop people posting bollocks, but the Daily Star, Daily Express etc. are just as bad, if not worse, than many overseas outlets.

On that note, is it worth creating a limited list of overseas media outlets that are allowed? I've been media whoring for years now so have a good idea about who is reliable and who is full of shit. @Univarn is knowledgable about that stuff as well.

Nothing printed in a Richard Desmond paper should grace the hallowed halls of SC.
See? Then we get all sorts of nutters with their own grudges complaining about this source and that source :D

I'm sure there are people with axes to grind about the owners of other newspapers, may as well close it all down.

We can't win.

No it isn't worth it I'm afraid, we tried it already. Do you think we just rocked up and decided to roll like this? :D

We were in Baghdad when you were in your dads bag :woot:

These forums have evolved over many years experimenting until we reach what we think are reasonable compromises. A LOT of people were complaining about the sources we allowed, now, nowhere near as many, it's the lesser of two evils and as we keep saying, you can't keep everyone happy, the best we can hope for is to keep some of you happy, except you ;)
